The comedy will not return after the Olympics.
February 5, 2014
It is being reported that NBC has cancelled The Michael J. Fox Show, removing the freshman comedy's remaining episodes from its schedule. The show premiered last fall with a straight-to-series order of 22 episodes - a full season's worth - but has only aired 15 of those to this point. It is unknown whether the remaining seven episodes will ever be released.
Today's cancellation comes one week after the network pulled the plug on Sean Saves the World, another freshman comedy that shared the 9:00pm comedy hour with The Michael J. Fox Show on Thursday nights. In the time slot, episodes of Hollywood Game Night will air beginning February 27.

I pvr'd the show from its start i had a feeling though it would be cancelled. had not seen any on lately its to bad always like MJF. one of the nice guys of film. its tough to get good ratings these days with so many types of shows and genres they are in. who knows what will happen though.

MJF in all his glory couldn't pull this stinker out of the trash. Bad writing, bad characters, bad concept. Out of the gate MJF is not TV anchor material, never was or would have been believable in that role. They were taking a chance, but not a big one to leave him in a comedic role. A real step out would have been to cast him in a dramatic role - which I think he would have nailed!

I liked the show. There were a lot of one liners that were great. I thought it was a fun, loving family show. I for one get sick and tired of shows where all you see are beautiful people, lots of boobs, sleeping around, etc. This shows will be greatly missed.

Never made it past the 2nd episode, just not funny at all, and worse yet, not even interesting. No sense having a decent cast if without decent writers to put up some good material. And for someone who mentioned the Exes (which is also terrible), I am sure that is a much cheaper show and TVLand has a different measure of success than a major network.

We gave up on this after about five shows. It just wasn't funny. Most of the characters weren't likable. That usually makes for a cancellation.
